Prior to this, Steven co-anchored and produced Channel NewsAsia’s flagship morning show, AM LIVE!, one of the network’s most-watched shows, with a colourful mix of hard news, live interviews and discussions on current issues.

During his stint as a morning show host, he interviewed numerous personalities. From tennis star Anna Chakvetadze, actress Maggie Q, pop singer Josh Groban, to former Hong Kong governor Chris Patten, just to name a few. In 2015, Steven also moderated the election debates and co-anchored Singapore’s General Elections results show.

His media career began in 1999, as a junior trailer producer for ESPN StarSports. A year later, he ventured out as a freelance TV producer and presenter.

Steven has also fronted Mediacorp programmes such as Crimewatch, and worked as a radio presenter with the company’s classical music station, Symphony 92.4FM.

Outside of work, Steven is a keen volunteer. He enjoys interacting with our youth and focuses on youth development through several community-related programmes. He is also a member of the Board of Directors at the YMCA of Singapore and a District Councilor with South West Community Development Council. When time permits, Steven is also an adjunct lecturer at local polytechnics.
